I’m addicted to striving. It is hard for me to just sit still long enough to take in the beauty and the peace that is right now because I’m always thinking about “what’s next?” Don’t get me wrong, it is important to have goals and to be ambitious, but sometimes when we stack our “to…

A Major Transition for Me/My Family

The last few weeks have been pretty hectic for me because my husband and I are now homeowners!!! We’ve purchased a beautiful all brick home that was built in 1910 and was once owned by my husband’s grandfather and it is the home his father grew up in. The house is very charming and classic…
